jim - yeah... your original plan is perfect. if you take your time, the results will be great;
Here are the steps i took for the color matched pieces:
*I removed the rubber on the bezel with goop-off, then proceeded to sand.
Sand the part down with 320 grit, then 400, then 600 wet sand, to a smooth finish
A coat or two of adhesion promoter
Several LIGHT coats of Duplicolor color matched spray
Let dry for a MINIMUM of 1 hour
1 very light coat of Duplicolor clear coat. let it get tacky for a minute or two, then hit it with a second HEAVY coat, and a third if needed.
